We all have a dream, and it’s called that way because it usually seems unachievable. We often think we don’t have the resources to make it happen or simply can’t commit to that kind of effort.

Maybe we start working on it, but give up after our first disappointment. Sure, things are way easier for some people, but your journey is not about waiting for things to just fall out of the sky; it’s about hustling and grinding until you reach your goal.

Don’t find excuses and never think that you don’t have what it takes. Think about the ones that made it with maybe half of what you have now, or less. Get your motivation from the ones that hustled and are now even more successful than the ones that ‘had it all’ from the day they were born.

Work ten times harder and don’t be afraid of disappointment. Stop thinking about taking a break because breaks don’t get things done. And when you feel like quitting, push your limits a bit further.

You’ll walk yourself through hell, but at the end you’ll know what heaven feels like.
